Too bad...I would have liked to see Wlad fight 3-4 times a year

And Wladimir and Manny cant just go and hold a fight themselves with no way to pay the opponent. HBO frankly screwed Wladimir over by running out of money.
German tv money would be sufficient to get fellow countrymen Virchis , Platov or Aussie Shane Cameron(who are all ranked by the IBF and aren't part of the elimination tournament) in the ring .
Wlad's camp probably see such fights as pointless excercises that aren't worth the effort .

I think he's wanting to wait for a unification fight with Holy or Ibrag...........or maybe even Chagaev..................as unification is his priority....

In addition to that, I think another reason he's sitting idle for now is that they don't want to waste a second fight in a row on yet another lackluster fighter like Austin who don't deserve to be there.

Better to wait a few months on someone with a title to become avialable; a fight that will mean something.

I usually get frustrated at the slow pace these heavies fight at, but in this case, I can understand sitting and waiting a while, seeing as how noone important is available, right now.

Yeah you're definitely super smart. Why would Klitschko want to get in the ring with the worst heavyweight champ in about 10 years, Hasim Rahman who just weighed his career high and almost got beat by a nobody.

Before you type things you might wanna think about how stupid you're making yourself look.
